It’s been awhile since I shared Jeff’s blogger tips and this is actually one of my favorites. I know that sometimes we get used to the summer heat and think, “no big deal” or “summer is almost over so the sun is not as dangerous.” In fact, the other day I was in my office and on the phone with my mom and she was telling me how hot it was outside. I was thinking she was wrong and it sure must be cold out today because I was freezing (probably because I hadn’t been outside since I arrived)… Needless to say I headed out thinking it was a perfect running day only to get to the door and realize it was blazing hot. Jeff Galloway has excellent advice on running in the heat.
Dealing with the heat training through the summer can not only be grueling, but down right dangerous. Here are some tips to train safely and as comfortable as possible in the hot summer months.
